More Philadelphia/Pittsburgh Simultaneous Titles Notes

February 19, 2018

Both the 1974 and 1975 respective NHL and NFL titles were won by Philadelphia and Pittsburgh teams.

The Philadelphia Flyers, in just their seventh season took the 1974 NHL title. It was a very quick crown for a 1968 expansion team.

Thus when the Steelers took their first title in their 42nd possibility in ’74, “Philly” and “Pitts” had simultaneous champions.

Both teams repeated as title winners in 1975, meaning Philadelphia and Pittsburgh had simultaneous champions from the time Pitts (16-6’d) Minne in Jan ’75 until the great 1976 Montreal Canadiens ended the two year Flyers’ title run by sweeping the Flyers in the ’76 NHL Final.
